Archie McPherson (born February 10, 1909 in Buchanan, Stirlingshire, Scotland, died 1969) was a Scottish footballer. McPherson began his career with Rangers before moving south of the border to join Liverpool, after just one year. He was to be a regular in Liverpool's first-team for the next five years, playing as an inside-left, and forming a partnership with Fred Hopkin. Described as a skilful player and an accurate passer, he moved on to Sheffield United, where he was employed as a wing-half. He featured on the losing side in the 1936 FA Cup Final, before returning to Scotland to spend one year at Falkirk, after which he retired. He later managed Alloa Athletic

He also played cricket, as a batsman, for Clackmannan County in the Scottish Counties Championship.
